A photograph contributed to Sandy Tilcock's exhibit "It’s Not About Me", Hult Center, Jacobs Gallery, Eugene, OR.

Sandy Tilcock chose the title to reflect the fact that her work is a collaboration between printer, author and artist.
The work includes limited edition letterpress broadsides and hand-bound books.
The content is contemporary: writings of prominent living authors with original graphics by working studio artists.
The means is traditional: letterpress printing using lead type, polymer plates and a hand-cranked cylinder proving press. Employing these hands-on technologies at the press is not intended to replicate historical printing methods but to honor the value of the book as an artistic object as well as a vessel for ideas.
